The ghosts of Iggy Azalea‘s past continue to affect the way in which she is treated by her detractors.
For, even after apologising for publishing several homophobic and racist tweets before her ascent to fame, the rapper finds herself unable to shake talk that it was her race and not her lyrical ability which lies at the heart of her short-lived chart success.
She was reminded me of this recently.
Watch what happens when she comes face to face with a “fan” keen to “thank” her for what she has done for Hip-Hop music below…
Though the rapper’s skills are questionable, one has to wonder if the video above was shot to highlight that or to prey on an artist who has become somewhat of an easy target.
Let’s hope her next LP, ‘Digital Distortion’, sees the Aussie performer showcase the gift many believe we are yet to see.
